I am thinking of tuning up some old planes and was wondering if I could dedicate the smaller ones to the shooting board. I was thinking the #5 would be more of a scrubber to take the worst off before final smoothing. Is a #5 being used like that going to be good enough to make perfect joints? Am I thinking my jack plane will be rougher than it should be?
